I booked for one night, then extended it to three nights upon check-in after deciding not to take a Halong Bay overnight cruise. The front desk staff were able to keep me in the same room regardless for the duration of my stay. All staff were very friendly and helpful, including calling to check on tour and taxi pickups. Excellent location in the heart of the Old Quarter.

Room Tip: Fourth floor rooms seemed to have not internet on that level working, but you can log into the inter...

I booked this hotel on the strengh of the excellent comments I read in the reviews, and was delighted to find them true.
Friendly service is almost a given in Vietnam. Efficient and friendly is harder to find. The service here is outstanding, from all the staff.

Super helpful staff...can't say enough about how great they were. Also an excellent breakfast and so nice to have fruit and treats in the room. Nicest bathrooms we saw in Vietnam. We came back several days after our first stay without a reservation, but they remembered us and got us set up with a lovely room. Will definitely recommend to all my friends.

What a wonderful hotel in the best location with the most amazing customer service you could possibly ask for! Beautifully appointed, great brekkie, great value for money and the most amazing staff ever. Soooo friendly and helpful!
The one thing I was say to people is to be aware that the. Cheaper rooms only have windows to the internal stairwell. Some people may be fine with that but I found it a little claustrophobic so spoke to the staff who we're amazing in finding us a bigger room with windows for a small upgrade fee - awesome.
Definitely stay there!

Hanoi old quarter is no novelty to us, it's our third time around. It's always bustling with people giving visitors the taste of crowded third-world Asia in transition toward structured, ordered Western standard of living. We chose to come here anyway because we had in tow colleagues and friends who are new to Hanoi, new to Asia in fact. The hotel is indeed an oasis on Hang Bac street, with its clean sparkling white facade and reception area in sharp contrast to the chaotic scene all around. The staff at the reception had excellent command of English, a common experience nowadays traveling throughout Vietnam compared to a few years before. We were treated to the personal routine of being seated and served with cold fruit juice in a cool air-conditioned area while registration is being completed. The room albeit small had all expected modern amenities including excellent internet Wi-Fi reception, not much to complain about. Space and view are premium in the old quarter so we were not expecting any. The hotel did an excellent job sealing itself acoustically from the cacophony of street noises. Free buffet breakfast was excellent and served in a quiet area in the back of reception. We could find free flowing coffee, tea and fresh fruit juices. An array of Western and Vietnamese style breakfast dishes were available for self-help, or specially ordered from a menu. Our traveling needs for a day trip to Halong Bay was expediently arranged by the travel agent working at the reception desk. We managed to entertain a couple of business guests for 2 hours in the tight reception area and briefly in the breakfast area. We couldn't ask for more in a small hotel not designed for business meetings. All in all it was a productive and pleasant experience. It's not Sofitel Metropole caliber, but for the money we paid, it was all worth it.

Couldn't have been more pleased with our stay here the staff were so helpful and attentive - going above and beyond such friendly helpful and happy staff. Room was great. Breakfast very nice and the location is right in the thick of it. They even gave us a waiting room after check out before our late train to Sapa... A real 11/10!

This is an incredibly affordable hotel with exceptionally helpful and friendly staff (p.s. If you stay here talk to Brian he is the best!). Location is superb right in the old quarter making it easy to get anywhere. Breakfast served in the morning is great and the rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Arrived to the hotel and got an ice cold watermelon juice which was perfect for the 40 degree Celsius weather. Thanks so much Oriental Central Hotel (particularly Brian Do) for an amazing stay!
